Leupold keeps their successful tradition of delivering state-of-the-art sport optics alive with their persistent attention to detail, precision and quality. This American optics company, located in Portland, Oregon, pioneered the process of nitrogen purging to waterproof riflescopes in 1947. Since then and to this day, Leupold continues to develop new technologies, and use advanced materials to push the envelope to produce some of the world's finest sport optics.
For hunters and shooters that need a lightweight optical sight that delivers a bit more power than 2-7x, Leupold offers the 3-9x33 VX-II Ultralight Riflescope. This fine hunting scope combines multicoated optics & 1/4 MOA precision adjustments in a 1.0" water and fog proof main tube for performance without compromise, yet it weighs 17% less than a full sized model. This low mounting scope sights fast and was designed to last a lifetime. It's compact size and moderate magnification levels make it an ideal choice for the one-rifle hunter who needs a scope that excels across the board. Owners of lightweight & scout rifles will appreciate its smaller form factor and diminutive weight.
To use a riflescope with your firearm, you'll need a mounting base and mounting rings in addition to the scope itself. Bases attach to your firearm and rings attach to your scope. By affixing the scope-mounted rings to the rifle-mounted base, you create a reliable, accurate and secure sighting system. Proper spacing of the rings, as well as the ring height should be considered to ensure a proper line of sight can be established. This will maximize the value of your investment, and enhance your shooting experience. It should be noted that in many mounting applications, a professional gunsmith's skills will be needed for proper installation.
